A curiously palindromic title sets the stage for Love We Are We Love, the exqusitely harmonius debut album from Chuck E. Costa and Mira Stanley, the singing, songwriting duo known as The Sea The Sea. The pair describe their songs as set "immediately before, in the midst of, or after a decisive plunge into the unknown" and talk a lot about leaps of faith and unanswered questions, a bit of inner lyrical turmoil that belies their delicate alt-folk melodies and sweetly entwined vocals. Produced by Todd Sickafoose (Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird), tracks like the lovely "Guess It Was" are both simply constructed and sublimely executed.
